Body pains are a common sign of many conditions. The flu is one of the most well-known conditions that can cause body pains. Body pains can also be caused by your everyday life, especially if you stand, walk, or exercise for long periods. Nowadays, sitting for hours in front of the computer screen has become a rising cause of body and muscle pains.
Muscle pain, or myalgia, is a symptom of an injury, infection, disease or other health problem. You may feel a deep, steady pain or random sharp pains. Some people have muscle pain all over, while others have it in specific areas. Everyone experiences muscle pain differently.
For treating body pain or muscle pain, you don’t need to have painkillers every time. Overuse of painkillers may have serious effects on health. You can treat minor muscle pain or body pain in a natural way at home. Here are some home remedies for body pain.
Have you ever wondered why we crave “adrak wali chai”(ginger tea) when we have those stubborn headaches? Adrak or ginger has several other properties other than adding taste to your food. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that are excellent for offering relief to pain. Make a paste of ginger and warm it a little (don’t heat it too much). In a piece of cloth, put the warm ginger paste and wrap it around the site of aching. Keep it for 15 minutes.
Haldi or turmeric has a number of qualities other than adding color to the food. It has medicinal properties and that’s why it is used extensively in Ayurvedic practices. It offers relief to swelling and burning sensations. Make a paste of turmeric powder, salt and lemon juice. Apply it on the site of the swelling or burning, and keep it for 15 minutes.
Cinnamon is filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. To use cinnamon as a gharelu ilaj (home remedy) for body pain, make a paste of cinnamon and honey. Apply it at the site of pain and massage it gently.
These were some easy home remedies for muscle pain or body pain. It is always better to search for a natural way to treat health problems.
